A Little More About Me:
I graduated from Xavier University with a BA in Communications: Electronic Media. I moved to Baltimore after college where I served as a Jesuit Volunteer for a year. During that time, I was a case manager at Chase Brexton, a health care facility located in the heart of Baltimore. After my year of volunteering I felt God’s calling, although not entirely sure of it, into Student Ministry.
In the summer after my year of volunteering, I was hired by Church of the Nativity in Timonium, Maryland as a Middle School Youth Minister. Over the next 12 years I oversaw grades 6-12 and young adults (18-29) as the Director of Student Ministry.
Today, I’m building Marathon Youth Ministry to be a resource for parishes and youth ministers. Marathon Youth Ministry was created to help youth ministers find the tools they need to lead a long lasting ministry. It’s also set on helping parishes discover the right youth ministry for their community. If you would like to partner please contact me HERE.
While I spend most of my time with Marathon Youth Ministry you can also find me on Download Youth Ministry. I’ve also been published in Group Magazine (July/Aug 2012 edition) and the Immerse Journal (Going Deeper With Doug Pagitts 575 Weeks). As I mentioned I’m the author of Rebuilding Youth Ministry and in January of 2017 my next book Rebuilding Confirmation will be released.
I have been married for over 9 years to my beautiful wife Kate, and together we have two awesome boys Matthew and Benjamin. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, working outside in the yard, hiking, and most especially running.
